The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has planned to give a blow of 40 thousand crore rupees to China in this festive season. A national campaign to boycott Chinese goods being run by CAT under the “Indian goods-our pride” has been called to celebrate all the festivals in the coming months with the use of Indian goods instead of Chinese goods. In this direction, there is a plan to sell the idols of Lord Ganesha made in the country on Ganesh Chaturthi.
National President of CAT, BC Bhartia and National General Secretary Praveen Khandelwal say that till last year, Ganesh ji from China used to sell in large quantities on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi across the country. But this year, CAT has advised merchant organizations spread across the country to make Ganesha statues of mud, cow dung and manure by the local people who make artworks in their city or state, potters etc. who live in lower or slum settlements. Use and get the sales tax done to the merchants, their employees and other people through their trade organizations. Thus, under the flag of CAT, traders all over the country are working to provide employment to those who are currently lacking employment or whose employment has been lost due to Corona.
CAT has also released some statues of “Environment Friend Ganesha” made of mud, cow dung and manure. Bhartia and Khandelwal said that the purpose of Ganesh idol made of these objects is to protect the environment and water from being polluted and to celebrate this festival in the true sense with full Indianness. He told that 6-inch, 9-inch and 12-inch Ganesh statues are being made in this order. In many idols, seeds of various vegetables including basil seeds are also being added, so that after immersing the idol in water, these seeds can be buried in the soil to take the form of plants. These idols of Ganesha can be immersed in a vessel in the house after the worship of Ganesh Chaturthi, this will save the environment and water from contamination.
